If you need further proof that famous people live in a completely different world than the rest of us riff raff, this story former NFL defensive back DeAngelo Hall told about a run-in he had with Paris Hilton during his 2004 rookie season will definitely do it for you.
The three-time Pro Bowler, who just retired after 14 years in the NFL playing for the Falcons, Raiders and Redskins, appeared on Simms & Lefkoe: The Show this week, and somehow the topic turned to rookie hazing.
